At Moesgaard Museum, you will learn about human life in the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, and the Viking Age through staged and dramatized narratives.
2. THE OLD TOWN
When in Aarhus, the Old Town should definitely be among your priorities. It is on Michelin’s guide of the world’s 1,000 biggest attractions. The museum was founded by Peter Holm in 1914. His vision continues to drive the staff at the museum: “For me, the most important matter was the creation of the city image, preferably with all the ‘hygge’ and atmosphere that is characteristic of small old towns with houses from different ages, crooked streets and small gardens with fruit trees, herbs and bushes. It was agreed that it was not to be a building museum with houses in systematic, style historic order…”
3. BOTANICAL GARDEN
The Botanical Garden is a beautiful space for nice walks or as a landmark on a run. Its alpine beds, thematic gardens and rose beds facilitate beautiful surroundings while you take a break or have a picnic. A stream winds its way through the Botanical Garden as well as the Old Town, forming three lakes.
In the Botanical Garden are the Greenhouses. Here, you can walk from one corner of the world to another. Through this world expedition, you will explore botany from four different climate zones.
